Ashby Carden

Obituary of Samuel R. Carden, Jefferson City, Tennessee.

Samuel R. Carden was born at Rogersville, Tenn., March 26, 1840, and died near Jefferson City, Tenn., November 24, 1914. He enlisted at Mossy Creek (now Jefferson City), Tenn., May 26, 1861, as a private in the "Peck Light Dragoons," which became Company E, 3d Battalion of Tennessee Cavalry, and in May, 1862, it became Company I, 2d Regiment of Tennessee Cavalry, of which Henry M. Ashby was the colonel, and served in the same company until the surrender of the Army of Tennessee near Greensboro, N. C., April 26, 1865, when he returned to his home. Sam Carden's prominent charcteristic was faithfulness to duty as he saw it, alike as a citizen, a soldier, an a Christian, and an outgrowth of this was absolute loyalty in his friendships. He united with the Presbyterian Church at Mossy Creek, Tenn., October 27, 1867, and adorned his profession by a godly walk and conversation.
